Manito Transit

The History of Manito Transit

Manito Transit was started in the small town of Manito, Illinois. In the mid-1960s it was purchased by the Meier Family and relocated to Ashkum, Illinois. It remained part of the Meier family of business for over 50 years until the end of 2012.

On December 31, 2012 Manito Transit was sold and became Manito Transit LLC. With non-union drivers Manito is able to service not only Illinois, but Indiana, Wisconsin, Missouri, Iowa, and Ohio. Manito’s success in the liquid hauling business can be traced back to the decision to maintain excellent equipment for its drivers and to provide perfect service to its customers.

In July of 2015 Manito Transit relocated to Bloomington, Illinois.
